Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has been named the world’s Top International Movie Star by Deadline.com. The Rock dominated this category back in 2013, slipped out of first place for a year, and then came roaring back with a combined box office earnings of $1.48 billion. That’s a little more than one Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Johnson took to Instagram to celebrate:
Only way to start this post is with THANK YOU. WORLD’S #1 INTERNATIONAL BOX OFFICE STAR. I was blessed with this title in 2013 and now again in 2015. $1.48billion is a lot of revenue to generate in our business in only one year, BUT it’s also the important reminder that regardless of what we achieve in life, we always gotta keep striving for more, staying hungrier than the rest and being grateful around every corner. This cool global achievement doesn’t happen without my amazing family, management, agents, attorneys, publicists, financial management, studio partners, fellow actors, Team Rock and the final two deserving personal shout outs – my dog #HobbsTheBeast and you… THE greatest f*cking fans in the world. Stay hungry and keep working your ass off because one day I want to see the news write a cool report about you and YOUR accomplishments. #LetsGetToWork #ChaseYourGreatness #SevenBucksProductions #1WorldWide #TimeForACheatMeal
The Rock has a number of films in the pipeline, including two Journey to [Someplace] sequels, a Fast and Furious sequel, Disney’s Moana, and, of course, Baywatch. WWE will also be looking to capitalize on this (and also make up for their injury-riddled current roster) in April when he’ll appear at WrestleMania 32.
I know we’re all very impressed by him being in roughly seven billion movies a year, but I’m way more curious about that hashtag cheat meal. I mean, he legitimately eats ten pounds of food a day when he sticks to his diet, how on Earth could he possibly eat more??
